Water is Life: Update on Our Community Water Tank

Raising our water tank
Raising our water tank

Dear Friends of Tumaini,

We are grateful for the support towards the wellbeing of our children. They enjoy the good health and the good environment at the centre because of you. This has not just happened, it has come a long way which has involved you and your commitment. We just don’t take this for granted, but we really appreciate and we know this is happening because of your sacrifice and commitment to change lives.

Water is life as they say. To have clean and running water helps very much especially in protecting children from water borne diseases. Tumaini children have always had a problem with water and our boreholes dry up for more than five months every year. Children are forced to fetch water from the stream, which gives us hard time as the water is not treated. We are hoping to drill water and this project started early last year. This was to enable Tumaini family to have running water throughout the year and not only Tumaini family but even the community members. We have managed to buy a 10,000 litre tank and we have done the fabrication and we have raised the tank. We have not drilled the water yet and the tank has been raised and this is now the second year with the tank up without water. We know if we can come together this will happen and our children will have clean and running water. Drilling has not happened because of lack of funds but we have always made it in other projects together. Clean and running water is part of good hygiene for the children and for the general use at home.

How will this happen? We have made always made things happen, and through sharing with our friends and family, it makes a difference. We have seen it happening and we know having clean and running water for our lovely children will make a difference in their home.

Thank you so much once again for your support and commitment.
